The Senate has passed a bill that would require the General Assembly to approve adoption of any elements of federal common core standards.
Virginia’s Standards of Learning exceed Common Core requirements, and is exempt from the current federal standards.
Critics of the bill have called it unnecessary. The bill was approved on a party line vote of 21 to 17.
